Giving Away My Books

I recently got a Kindle. I also live in a small house so I’m also trying to organize my office. I have a ton of books that I’ve read in the past two years.  I want to pass these books onto other people, whom also like to read.  If you live locally in Orange County, I will meet you to hand off these books.  If you live elsewhere, I have a ton of Flat Rate Priority Mail boxes.  I can mail you the books.  All I ask is reimbursement for the mailing fees.

I have a old dresser that I keep my books that I'm done with in, and first I look them up for amount on Amazon (sometimes certain ones shock you for their value and its fun shopping money).. then second I put them on www.swaptree.com where I can get other books in exchange. or CDs or Video games,, or Movies,, so that way you can get 'gifts' for your family for just the shipping exchange. Its an awesome website and I had to pause my account because there were so many 'matches for what i had and what i wanted'. d

I just finished Love the One You're With! It was really good! Made me feel guilty though...like I was doing something wrong just READING about it! Haha.

Hi Julie - what a great idea. I should start going through my books to pass along. If they are still available - I Was A Really Good Mom Before I Had Children and You'll Never Nanny In This Town Again. Please let me know if you would like to be reimbursed through Paypal or another way. Thank you.

Wow! What a great idea! I would love a handful if you wouldn't mind. Would you let me know the amount to ship a few to me? I'm all the way in FL, but I believe you mentioned the flat rate boxes. I'm interested in these: Bright Lights, Big Ass-Jen Lancaster Baby Proof (Hardcover)-Emily Giffin The Devil in the Junior League (Hardcover)-Linda Francis Lee Love The One You’re With (Hardcover)-Emily Giffin Or any others you recommend? I'm looking for some good summer reading! I'm going on a trip and will need a few books. (I've read Chasing Harry Winston, The Devil Wears Prada, Everyone Worth Knowing, The Gatecrasher, Shopaholic & Baby, Remember Me?)

Tracey, I got many e-mails also about the books. I only have this one left that you requested: The Devil in the Junior League (Hardcover)-Linda Francis Lee. I can mail it to you, media mail. If there are others that you may want, let me know. I'm marking all the taken books.

Hi Julie, How would you want me to reimburse you for the shipment? I don't want you to have to go to a lot of trouble for just one book. Let me know! (you can email me... tropicalhappiness09 (at) gmail (dot) com if that is easier) THANKS!

Do you have a Hastings in your area? They buy gently used books. Although, I don't recall getting alot for mine, but it was better than letting them sit on a shelf.

We have the same taste in books! If you don't get enough takers give them to your library and take the write off.

That's what I'm going to do. I figured that I would put it out there if someone wanted them first. Pay it forward.
